We bear a brand,
a stigma which bears no seed, evokes no reverence
We face the choice of broad or narrow way at its most stark
When we die, we die for you.
This is for the Trifecta challenge, again, use the word “brand”, in its third definition-
3a (1) : a mark made by burning with a hot iron to attest manufacture or quality or to designate ownership
(2) : a printed mark made for similar purposes : trademark
b (1) : a mark put on criminals with a hot iron
(2) : a mark of disgrace : stigma-
in a piece between 33 and 333 words. I like the challenge of 33. I was going to write this in 333 words, but why use 333 when you can use 33?
I found the video of Dwayne Jones at Annie Paul.
Please comment. As this is a writing challenge, constructive criticism is particularly welcome.
